DST/STD time changes are shown in bold red.
A ZULU/LOCAL Time Conversion Table is available if needed.
None of the above nets will run without an NCS.
Please consider stepping up to run a net if there is no NCS scheduled
or if the scheduled NCS doesn't appear at the scheduled time.
Generally speaking, any NCS is better than no NCS.

Helpful Hints

RTTY uses LSB with AFSK tones of 2125 Hz mark and 2295 Hz space (170 Hz shift), 45 baud (60 wpm).
If you use FSK, tune 2.125 kHz lower, equivalent to zero beating the mark tone of an AFSK station tuned to
the specified net frequency.  If you must use USB, then invert your AFSK tones and tune 4.250 kHz lower.

PSK31 uses USB and signals will be found at about 1500 Hz offset in the waterfall display.  NCS should turn off
AFC in his/her software.  Set your freqency to the net frequency and then fine tune with your mouse and waterfall
display.  Do NOT use DSP, or adjust RIT or your VFO after you check in.  BPSK modulation is recommended.

CW nets (all of them) are very accommodating and will adjust to your sending speed when contacting you so
DO NOT send faster than you can receive comfortably.  CW nets may conduct housekeeping transmissions,
such as those involving relay stations, at much faster speeds for the sake of economy.

 

Changes to the schedule above are made promptly when the Webmaster is directly
notified
of a change by the Net Coordinator for the affected net or by the Club President.
Please direct all net schedule and net-related concerns to the relevant Net Coordinator!

Please note that Net Control Stations will do their best to start nets on published frequencies, but all nets are +/- QRM.  There are times that you will find the nets in operation +/- a few kHz of the scheduled frequency if the frequency was in use and not relinquished by net time, or due to broadcast interference or QRM.  If a net cannot operate on the scheduled frequency, NCS will first try any published alternate frequency before looking for another clear frequency.  A notice should be posted to the 3905Checkins Email Group advising of delays or frequency changes, etc.

Ideally, if stations waiting on frequency for an NCS to appear don't hear one within a few minutes after the usual prelist/net start time, they should inquire on the net frequency to see if other stations are present.  If so and no NCS is present, someone should consider stepping forward and picking up NCS duty … otherwise there may be no net.  Generally speaking, any NCS is better than no NCS.
